About the Book

Welcome to the magical land of DRAGONIA. At the end of The Monocle, Squinton is shot forward like a silver bullet toward the unknown kingdom through a glowing orb in the night sky; all while straddling the cold, sharp, feathers of a mystical, crystal-winged gryphon. His first challenge is to enter the unknown land of Dragonia without particular notice. His second is to win the hearts of the citizens of Dragonia with his smarts, his wit and of course, his charm. He is tasked by Twillinger, the current Dragon Lord's official representative, to undergo "Dragon Lord Training". Twillie is a giant red squirrel who dresses in snappy tuxedos, and guides Squinton on a series of challenges in order to become the ultimate sage: "The New Dragon Lord of Dragonia." Dragonia's people have always historically chosen the leader of ancient Dragon Lords. Along with the consultation of the other lords, the goal is to promote equality, positive collaboration and social justice within and between ALL 8 Realms. Will Squinton achieve his goals and succeed in the series of challenges placed before him? Will he earn the ultimate titles of wisdom and fortune?
